A Valley View

Kathleen Ossip

About This Poem


"The journey I've taken most often in my life is the drive on the New York State Thruway from my house in Westchester County, just north of the Bronx, to Albany, where I grew up. I've seen more dramatic landscapes, but a valley view is still my favorite kind of view, even when anxieties intrude."
—Kathleen Ossip
